A Faboulous Black Woman…Living, Thriving, & Healing From Depression
Hey there bloggers, about to lay it down for the night. Sleeping well at night thanks to the meds, so no late night ramblings. Going to rest my brain because it was on overload today. My bday is in 17 days and although I’m excited, I can’t help but be sad. Sad and disappointed that I’m not where I want to be by 40. I’m dwelling on my past mistakes and why things have not worked out, now my anxiety level is sky high!!!
Welcome, My name is Olivia Shepherd, and I am the founder of this awesome blog about depression and mental illness. I started this blog in 2016 after being diagnosed with Major Depression, Anxiety and PTSD. I didn't have anybody to talk too or share my feelings with, so I decided to share them publicly to help others.
I'm passionate and dedicated to bringing awareness about mental health, especially in the African American community.
I also want to empower your voice to speak up and fight the stigma surrounding this illness.
I’m also the founder of AshesToBeauty Mentoring & Outreach, a virtual online service dedicated to to the positive development and accelerated recovery of girls and women who have experienced abuse and depression, Ashes To Beauty strives to empower women to take their lives back by providing life skill education, one-on-one mentorship and impactful personal tools by which these impacted women can build the foundation for a successful future.
Look forward to having you read my blog,
